A recap of our nine guidelines:

  1. Wash Your Hands:

    We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again – one of the most important preventative measures you can take all season long is to wash your hands! One of the most important preventative measures that you can take is to wash your hands! Make sure you are lathering your hands with soap, scrubbing them for at least 20 seconds and ensure to use hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol if soap and water is not available.

  2. Follow Proper Sneeze Etiquette: Make sure you cover your mouth and nose with a tissue when you cough or sneeze. Put your used tissue in a waste basket. If you don’t have a tissue, cough or sneeze into your upper sleeve, not your hands.

  3. Fully Clean and Disinfect High Touch Points: Phones, car interiors, keyboards, doorknobs, light switches, hand rails, remote controls and children’s toys are all hotbeds for microorganisms.  Apply a disinfectant to high touch surfaces often to help reduce the spread of viruses and bacteria.

  4. Clean Off Frequently Touched Items: Phones, car interiors, keyboards, doorknobs, light switches, hand rails, remote controls, kitchen tools, and children’s toys are all hotbeds for bacteria and germs! So washing all these objects occasionally helps reduce the risk of bacteria and germ build up.

  5. Don’t Touch Your Face: The best way to avoid sickness is to avoid touching your face or any other mucus membrane, such as your eyes, mouth, ears and nose.

  6. Keep a Close Eye On Your Symptoms: Staying aware of how you are feeling throughout the flu season will help you to take preventative measures (such as taking extra Vitamin C) if you feel symptoms coming on. If you develop a cough or fever, communicate these symptoms with your employer and family. It can also help you adjust your activity levels to better prevent illness.

  7. Stay Home: If you develop flu-like symptoms, ensure to stay home and keep away from the general public.  Viruses can spread easily and can be dangerous to people with weak immune systems such as young children, the elderly and anyone with long-term health problems.

  8. Strengthen Your Immune System: Ensure to get at least 7-9hrs of sleep to keep your immune system working properly.  A strong immune system can help ward of viruses and keep you from getting sick.

  9. Stay Educated and Aware!: One of the best offenses is a strong defense, and during times like these, the best preventative action you can take is to educate yourself and remain aware of all new COVID-19 developments.
